Severe haemophilic arthropathy of the elbow is a significant cause of morbidity among adults with haemophilia. However, previous reports of total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) in the haemophilic population have been based on small numbers of patients with relatively short-term follow-up. The records of seven total elbow arthroplasties in six adult men with(More)
In persons with haemophilia (PWH), repeated ankle haemarthroses lead to pain, loss of joint range of motion (ROM), and limitations in activity and participation in society. PWH are offered ankle arthrodesis (AA) to eliminate pain. In our experience, PWH are hesitant to proceed to AA due to concerns regarding gait anomalies, functional decline and complete(More)
INTRODUCTION People with haemophilia (PWH) experience end stage joint disease as a result of repeated hemarthrosis, commonly leading to total knee arthroplasty (TKA). AIM The goal of this meta-analysis is to calculate expected outcomes for range of motion (ROM), functional mobility, and complication rates in PWH following TKA. METHODS Studies published(More)
INTRODUCTION Recurrent joint hemarthroses due to hemophilia (Factor VIII and Factor IX deficiency) often lead to invasive orthopedic interventions to decrease frequency of bleeding and/or to alleviate pain associated with end-stage hemophilic arthropathy. AIM Identify trends in invasive orthopedic interventions among people with hemophilia who were(More)
